Notes :
(1) Apparent confusion with regards to the tour name; both the tour itinerary and dining menu called this 'The Humber Belle' whereas the ticket is marked 'The Humber Roundabout'. Unfortunately a trawl of the Internet (in May 2015) has failed to throw up any photos to show if their was a tour headboard carried and, if so, what tour name was used.
(2) On the return journey the train overshot the Grantham stop and had to set-back to the station.
